I’m A Celebrity 2016: Ant and Dec slammed for the second time over ‘distasteful’ sketch!

Ant and Dec have been slammed for a second time this I’m A Celebrity series over a sketch.


Ant and Dec have been slammed by I’m A Celebrity viewers on Friday night after an ‘appalling’ and ‘disrespectful’ sketch.

There has been a long running joke between Anthony McPartlin, OBE and contestant Larry Lamb – Ant has expressed his ‘love’ for Larry during this series.

On Thursday night Larry became the latest celebrity to be evicted from the jungle.

In Friday’s show Ant and Dec ‘paid tribute’ to Larry – Ant pretended to play the Last Post on a trumpet.

The Last Post is played all over the world on Remembrance Day, where armed forces (soldiers, sailors and airmen) are commemorated.

Viewers have slammed I’m A Celebrity for the disrespectful sketch.

One viewer wrote: “Usually a big fan of Ant and Dec…but playing the last post as part of a joke..don’t see the funny side #imaceleb”

“Found the last post playing for someone being voted off a reality show disrespectful #imacelebrity”

The tweets are endless.

This isn’t the first time Ant and Dec have been slammed this series, fans didn’t see the funny side earlier in the series when the presenters mocked the world famous physicist, Stephen Hawking.
